“Disney’s The Little Mermaid

After the stage success of “Beauty and the Beast,” it was inevitable that the finned femme who turned Walt Disney Studios around would wind up on stage.

See for yourself how it was pulled off in the touring stage production, paying its first visit to Indianapolis.  Feb. 7-12   Murat Theatre Details
